From 1995 to 2004, Miguel Ruiz
offered his apprentices and people new to his teachings a ceremony
he called "The Circle of Fire" -- a spiritual circle
based in love, honest communication, respect and support.
A CIRCLE reminded us
of the interconnectedness of all beings, the web of life that
flows through each of us
represented our passion and intent to live our lives in freedom,
to the fullest of our capacity as human beings. Within the Circle,
our commitment was to ourselves as individuals and to a greater
family, with a willingness to support and be supported in honesty
When the decade of don Miguel's
ceremonies came to an end, Allan Hardman continued the tradition
with "The Summer Celebration of Life"
beginning in 2005 and continuing each summer since then.
